Can you short sale a commercial property?

Commercial real estate can be sold through a short sale, just like any other type of real estate. Similarly to a home, there is a process to sell real estate through a short sale. You'll need to contact the lender, for instance, before you can agree to sell the real estate for less than it's worth. If you don't, you'll end up owing the lender the difference in the sale price versus what you owe.

Why lease or buy a commercial property?

When you want to decide if you should lease or purchase a facility, there are a few things to consider. First, can you afford to buy the property up front, and do you have the capital to do it? If you're ready to sign a lease, do you have the means to support the lease for the entire term?

Charleston-area real estate booming with high demand

The short supply of real estate in any area can help boost incomes by increasing the value of homes and businesses. For landlords, this means they have better rent coming in because of higher home values. Short supply means more people are looking for rentals, and the few that exist have the ability to be rented for more than they could have in the past.

Purchasing versus leasing: The benefits of each in real estate

When you're considering whether you want to lease or purchase a facility for your business, you need to consider a number of possible benefits for each. Leasing can be a great option for new businesses, but owning a building can also be a long-term investment. Here are some possible benefits to consider for leasing or owning a property.

Purchasing a business? These are terms you should know

If you're ready to purchase a business, then you need to be aware of property law and real estate laws. What you do now can affect you far into the future, so it's wise to take steps to make sure you're protected against broken contracts and other concerns.

You can negotiate for a better lease

When you're ready to lease a property for your business, it can be an exciting time. However, you'll want to make sure you're getting as much as you can for the money you're spending. Your attorney can help you with the negotiations, which is something you should always consider doing, especially if you think you can bring down the cost of a lease or have extras thrown in to help you along.
